Just thought I would let you know that I've added a few (47 to be exact) photos to my Flickr.com account. You can check them out at this link: Dustin's New Photos. You can definitely see that there is a Fall theme to them. Most of them were taken here in Flagstaff, but some are also from the Grand Canyon. Anyway, I hope you like them and don't forget to leave feedback if you have time.
Also, if you want to see all of my photos, click this link: Dustin's Photography. They're all there. Prints of these photos are available for purchase. If you're interested please email me at arizonadb2005@yahoo dot com for pricing and shipping information. Sorry, I can not ship internationally at this time.
"The 13 rays of red and gold on the top half of the flag represent both the 13 original colonies of the Union, and the rays of the Western setting sun. Red and gold were also the colors carried by Coronado's Spanish expedition in search of the Seven Cities of Cibola in 1540. The bottom half of the flag has the same Liberty blue as the United States flag. Since Arizona was the largest producer of copper in the nation, a copper star was placed in the flag's center."

Now, as for the cinders, Flagstaff is located right in the middle of an extinct volcanic field. Over the last several hundred thousand years, various eruptions have created hundreds of small volcanoes called Cinder Cones. When they erupted and spewed millions of tons of heated rock into the air which spread out over the surrounding land. This layer of airborne rock is composed of millions of small, gravel-sized stones called cinders, which is what the leaf is laying on in the photo above. These cinders are so plentiful that, instead of spreading sand on the roads in the winter like most of the country, Flagstaff uses cinders to provided drivers with traction on the ice.

Because Lockett Meadow is at an elevation of 8600 feet and is located on the north side of the mountain the leaves usually change there first. It will be another week or so before the rest of the San Fran Peaks are peak color.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to mention two Flagstaff websites. The first is a new website called Faces of Flagstaff.com. Created and maintained by Emily Patterson, a Flagstaff local. Each month "Faces of Flagstaff" features several individuals from Flagstaff, giving background info on the person as well as discussing how the individual contributes to our community. She also distributes copies of a Newsletter version of the website to over 15 popular local businesses in Flagstaff. It just so happens that I'm featured in the October issue as a new and upcoming photographer from Flagstaff, so I hope you will check out her site. I think she's doing a great service for our city.
The other website I wanted to mention is Flagstaff.cc, which is geared more toward tourism in Flagstaff. If you are planning a trip to Flag or are just curious about what there is to do here in this northern Arizona mountain town this site is a must see. Of particular interest to me is their Flagstaff Bloggers section, of which Flagstaff Daily Photo is a new addition. Also, a feature they add each Fall to the site is the Leaf-O-Meter, which tells you how much the leaves around Flagstaff have changed. A useful tool if you are planning a "leaf run" to Flagstaff this Fall.
Please take a moment to check out these two wonderful Flagstaff websites. Thank you.
